be an entrepreneur. passing so many laws and regulations and taxes that they kill the start up businesses in ways that are crazy. >> i have to jump in. thank you so much for talking about entrepreneurship. you were there, you were a part of that. there has been so much destruction to the assistance program. talk about rules and regulations. those are things your administration, when you were the speaker of the house, so many of those types of rules and regulations were built into the program, so much that they have not responded to the recession. it is only able to reach about 30% of the children who are poor in this country. an incredible increase in child poverty been. micro finance would may be a great way to insert into the system. if a woman is receiving cash assistance or food stamps and she happens to, may be working on the side doing hair and nails, housekeeping, child care. fantastic things. that $50 or $100 she makes on the weekend, god forbid she reported to the case manager because she would be criminalized for something that would be celebrated in this country.

week calling for the biggest changes to gun laws this country has seen in two decades. yesterday the president surrounded by children who wrote him letters after the newtown tragedy urged congress to take action on a number of proposals including universal background checks for anyone buying a gun, restoring the ban on military style assault weapons and limiting magazines to ten rounds, giving law enforcement additional tools to prosecute gun crimes and improving the mental health system for young people in this country. the president also outlined 23 executive orders that mostly reinforced existing laws, speaking directly to congress he urged action despite a tough political road ahead. >> this will be difficult. there will be pundits and politicians and special interest lobbyists publicly warning of a tyrannical all out assault on on liberty. not because that's true but because they want to gin up fear or higher ratings or revenue for themselves. the only way we'll be able to change is if their audience, their constituents, their membership says this time must be different. tha
anyone else under the law, for if we are truly created equal than surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. our journey is not cleat until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see america as a land of opportunity. until bright young students and engineers are he be liennisted n our workforce rather than expelled from our country. >> there's grievance there, not just rights. people waiting in line. i said this before, i was lucky to be there when south africans first got the vote, all south africans, and they waited for four or five hours and i thought that was unbelievable. and then to watch people in america in this advanced society of democracy having to wait eight hours. it looked like a punitive action by republicans to be blunt about it from state legislatures and big capital city that is decided, you know what? let's make it hard for these people. maybe we can cut down that vote. >> that's one of those great underr
after restrictive abortion law passed. thank you both for joining me. congresswoman speier, it's a big day. big anniversary. big strides have been made. let's put this graphic up again. five states only have one abortion clinic left. it's a protected right. what's going on in these states though? >> well, there's been a systemic effort by the anti-choice community to go into the states and get laws passed to restrict access to abortion. last year and the year before were the worst two years in terms of the more restrictions that were placed on abortion opportunities for women. 135 laws were passed in over 30 states restricting a woman's right to choose. >> now, diane, when we talk about mississippi, we see that a lot of states and governors are really leading the charge. let me show you how some of the governors around the country are talking about women's right to choose and bors rights. watch this. >> to be clear, my goal and the goal of many of those joining me here today is to make abortion at any stage a thing of the past. >> we're going to continue to try to work to end abortion
't actually reject their legislation. i don't want to be considered part of that, but i will sign it into law. that is exactly the way that governor bob mcdonnell played it a year ago when virginia republicans got themselves nationally famous with their bill forcing unwanted and medically unnecessary ultra sounds on virginia women, right? bob mcdonnell did the same deal back then. he expressed surprise. what is this you are doing in the legislature, fellow republicans. i certainly did not expect this. this is not my priority. don't associate me with this. and then he signed it, thus earning himself the national nickname ever more of governor ultrasound. same deal. what is this? what are you doing there? i definitely don't want to be famous for that. democrats in the virginia capital tell us that if the surprised gerrymandering bill passes and the governor does sign it, they will ask the courts to declare it unconstitutional. but meanwhile, virginia republicans are also pushing a bill that would also change the state's rules for electing a president. based on the congressional maps that virgin
republican governors, some of the worst laws being passed now to punish women and to deny access to reproductive health care. >> it's unbelievable. let me bring in my epic politics man because i want to know whether or not this will ever be a winning strategy for republicans. >> what kathy is saying is true. when you look back at what ronald reagan did and the affect he had on later generations on republicans, it was almost as if they wanted to adopt his doctrine going forward. it worked for a while. even today we see a meeting in williamsburg, virginia, talking about changing their messaging. if wasn't worth talking about rape. they're starting to learn that it's resonating with a few people in a specific party. if they see repeated losses at the ballot box that's all they care about and that's what it comes down to. >> hastings, let me play devil's advocate. sometimes we can live in our own progressive bubble and maybe we're not living to people who are making reasonable arguments that are pro-life. do you think there are individuals who are genuinely pro-life and genuinely car
-doping agency that he was contrite, that he was serious about taking their findings as the new law of the land. that their findings about him were correct. he had to show he was serious about that, and if he did that, maybe they would lift the lifetime ban they had imposed upon him. the second thing he had to do was build public sympathy. try to remind people why they fell in love with lance armstrong in the first place. on the first front failed miserably. he actually drew a line through the heart of the report. the heart of the report said that lance armstrong was actually a doping ringleader, that he wasn't just another cyclist who used peds, but that he organized his team to actually use dope. >> he wasn't seping of that last night. >> no. he said absolutely not. and today they are not happy with that interview. on the second front about building public sympathy, i mean, my word, i felt like i was watching the titanic hit an iceberg. i felt like oprah kept trying to help him, like throwing him lifelines, like try to make yourself more sympathetic, please. all he could do is stare back with
be opposed to overturning the roe v. wade. back in 2011 they broke the amount of laws that were limiting abortion. you see 92, which is gigantic. now in 2012 well, it's been down to 43. those 43 are now centered on six states, and of course there are some red states that are trying to take away rights. now this is an interesting stat as well. this is the most interesting one. hey, do you think abortion should be legal or not? 52% say it should be legal under certain circumstances. 25% said legal in all cases and 20% wanted flat-out outlawed. that means only 20% of the country, one in five actually want abortion to be illegal under all circumstances. overturn roe v. wade. that's a tiny minority. you have 77% saying they are, in fact, pro-choice. when you say legal under certain circumstances. that makes you pro-choice. that mean you're in favor of roe v. wade after all. the country is on our sides and on the side of the legislatures, not so much. now in mississippi they're trying to eliminate abortion. they can't make it illegal but they can limit access to it. >> reporter: the signs are
state to enforce any new federal gun law. >> to use this tragedy somehow as to say we need great reforms is just the wrong thing to do. >> reporter: in oregon, a sheriff stood by his intention not to enforce any law he believes is unconstitutional. >> making criminals out of honest citizens, that's not the right path to go down. >> reporter: when the president made his announcement, he was joined by four kids who wrote him letters after sandy hook. >> these are some pretty smart letters from some pretty smart young people. julia said -- julia, where are you? there you go. "i'm not scared for my safety, i'm scared for others." >> reporter: rush limbaugh mocked that. >> the children are writing letters to the president, we don't want to die, we don't want to die. >> reporter: the president's proposals if passed by congress would ban assault weapons and high capacity magazine clips and require background checks on virtually every gun sale, even those between private individuals at gun shows. he called on his supporters to put pressure on members of congress. >> ask them what's more importan
